Mission One Electric Bike Breaks World Speed Record

From concept to real product: The Mission One electric bike—designed and made by Yves Behar and Mission Motors—is now the world's fastest electric bike at 161mph (260km/h). And they got a video to prove it.

The bike broke the record on September 1, averaging 150.059mph, and reaching a top speed of 161mph. The most amazing thing is that this is not a prototype, but an actual production model. It's the same as the first 300 bikes that will be available in 2010. In fact, you can get one of the first 50, which are already available for custom order.

It only has a 150 miles range, but still, color me absolutely wowiezowiebbergasted. [Fast Company]
